Donna The Buffalo is honored to Perform at this year’s
Americana Music Festival at Musicians Corner Centennial Park  
Saturday, September 21st at 3:15pm

More energized and focused than ever before in their near 25-year career, roots-music troubadours Donna the Buffalo debuted their first studio album (and 10th album) in five years, Tonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday, on June 18th via Sugar Hill Records. The album proves the band as a consistent steward of Americana music, their signature sound—traditional mountain music infused with elements of Cajun, rock, folk, reggae and country—an eclectic and extraordinary melting pot of such. It debuted at #5 on the Americana Music Charts and has remained within the top ten ever since.

MCRThumbHear Donna the Buffalo LIVE on Music City Roots on Wed, Sept 11th, 7pm CST
“Donna The Buffalo is from central New York state, not Louisiana, but this widely loved quintet has woven that joyful, hip-shaking zydeco pulse into the DNA of its sound, and leaders Jeb Puryear and Tara Nevins have wrapped that core vibe with hopeful, mellow lyrics.” — Music City Roots, Craig Havighurst

hdrJamBase recently hosted Donna the Buffalo in their San Francisco offices.  See their exclusive videos of “Don’t Know What We’ve Got,” “One Day At A Time” and “All Aboard” → http://bit.ly/1dZO5Lf

Kind Words About Tonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday:


“This set…highlights everything this consistent band does, and it has a warm, live-sounding production… The end result is one of Donna the Buffalo’s best outings…This is what 21st century Americana sounds like, a little bit of this and that from anywhere wrapped up into a poignant, jamming dance reel, a place where the past and history meet easily in the immediate now and everybody feels like dancing.” —All Music“Multi-instrumentalist Tara Nevins and Jeb Puryear, both ace guitarists, split vocals and writing for this band that’s country, old-timey, rock and roll, and well, just all around great. Best tune? Pick any one. Here’s a disc well worth your entertainment dollar.” —Vintage Guitar

“…This new effort revels in the kind of rousing enthusiasm that’s made the Donnas such festival favorites in recent years. The uninitiated ought to take note –Tonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday is as its title implies, the kind of album destined to make an everlasting impression.” —The Bluegrass Situation

“Herd of ’em?  One of our favorite bands, with what might be one of our favorite albums of theirs” —WNCW, Martin Anderson

“Toe-tapping country music” —Washington Post

“We’ve all had this experience. You’re in a park or at a music festival, with song in the air.  You look around and there’s some giant of  a man dancing with a tiny child.  All their cares in the world being twirled away into the sunshine.  You just grin, whether at the silliness of the adult or the carefree nature of the child.  That’s the kind of emotion the latest album from Donna the Buffalo, Tonight, Tomorrow, and Yesterday, elicits.” —Twangville, Shawn Underwood

“Tonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday” goes beyond being a good album, it captures all that makes Donna The Buffalo one of the most fun and electrifying bands on the concert circuit today.”–Wildman Steve Radio

“They’ve got some real chops in just about every department.” —The Nashville Scene, Jon Weisberger

“Next time Donna the Buffalo throws a house party, I definitely want to go. After decades on the festival scene, this energetic band has acquired a super-dedicated fan base known as the Herd — and at some point…I would love to see them all bopping along with [I Love My Tribe’s] irresistible chorus.” —CMT Edge, Craig Sheburne

sturgill-simpson-high-top-mountainNashville sounds like Nashville again on High Top Mountain, the debut release from singer-songwriter Sturgill Simpson. From furious honky-tonk and pre-outlaw country-rocking to spellbinding bluegrass pickin’ and emotional balladry, the album serves as a one-stop guide to everything that made real country music such a force to be reckoned with. Pure and uncompromising, devoid of gloss and fakery, High Top Mountain’s dozen instant classics evoke the sound of timeless country in its many guises and brings back the lyrical forthrightness and depth that permeated the music Simpson absorbed during his Kentucky childhood.

“…this is GOOD COUNTRY. You know, the kind cut from the same mold as Waylon, Willie, and Johnny. ..outlaw, gritty, country-rock with a shot of bourbon (no ice.) …We’re glad he gave up the railroad and got back to writin’ songs. There is something here for sure. Something I think any music lover (country or not) can appreciate.” —MOKB Presents

“’The most outlaw thing that I ever done is give a good woman a ring,’ sings Simpson on ‘Life Ain’t Fair And The World Is Mean,’ off his new album, High Top Mountain, which mostly works to subvert the outlaw myth. Not that Simpson disdains outlaw’s forefathers, but High Top Mountain tells his own story. He started recording it in mid 2012, laying down tracks at Hillbilly Central and other studios in Nashville with players like ‘Pig’ Robbins on piano and Robby Turner on pedal steel. Simpson says the record is an effort to ‘capture the music my grandfathers played.’ The album is named after a cemetery where many of Simpson’s family members are buried, near his family’s home in the Appalachia coal town of Jackson, Kentucky. The town is on the Kentucky River in Breathitt County, about 50 miles south of Sandy Hook, where Keith Whitley was born, and also not far from Cordell, where Ricky Skaggs was born. ‘I love it. In my heart it will always be home,’ says Simpson” —Davis Inman, American Songwriter
